it has been a long time.

It’s been a long time since I’ve written. It’s been a busy two months. The group show Enigma in Baton Rouge, and the two person show at Graphite Galleries have both come to an end.

In Enigma, curated by Kelli Scott Kelley, I had the honor of exhibiting with Jamie Baldridge, Lafayette, Louisiana, Mark Cervenka, Houston, Texas, Amy Guidry, Lafayette, Louisiana, Todd Hines, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Debbie Kupinsky, Appleton, Wisconsin, and Karey Rawitscher, Czech Republic. All are fantastic narrative artists, and encourage you to visit their websites.

For the two person show in Graphite Galleries I was paired with the artist Lidia Altagracia. This New Orleans based artist’s work is sometimes quirky, sometimes dreamy, sometimes dark, and often humorous. You should definitely check her out. She’s become one of my new favorites.

I’ve been busy in the studio and recently for the first time since my undergrad days I was approached to do a commission. The interested party supplied me with the line of text and size of the finished pieces, but left all other creative freedom to me. It’s the first time I’ve ever been approached for a commission in this manner, and in all honesty, I was a little nervous. The pieces have been delivered, the couple loved them both. Here are the finished works:
